I love how this book is laid out. My 3 year old can even flip through the color edges and search for a bird we have spotted outside. The females are represented if they differ from the males, as are the juveniles with their own pages and descriptions. The feeding, nesting and migrating habits are listed and detailed to how they fit in New Jersey. A great field guide for any birdlover - whether novice or expert!

I have now brought 4 copies of this book from Amazon. com and I treasure and use almost daily my own copy, which was a housewarming gift from a friend.

I moved into New Jersey in 2004, and hung up a bird feeder, which was also a gift. Birds responded aplenty but I knew only a few of them. My friend had this guide written and illustrated for the birds of her state, but she knew there was one that cover other states so she sent me the one for my area. She also knew that I didn't know a lot about birds so she sent me the guide she knew even I could use.

You don't need to know anything about a bird, all you have to do is see it. This guide is devided by colors, so if the bird you're looking for is mostly gray, just open to the illustrations of mostly grey birds, find a picture of yours and start reading about it. All birds are shown in color photos and both males and females are shown. Same goes for any color bird from mostly white to mostly black and every color in between.

The book is spacific to the state you're in so it's small, and can be kept quite handy by a window or door or any other observation point. It is also well constructed, mine is still in good shape after 8 years and heavy use by myself and many visitors. It, or the same book for a different region, has become my favorit house warmingpresent for relocating friend and family.

The Birds of New Jersey Field Guide is a great little book and a must have for identifying birds that visit your backyard or birds you might see while out sightseeing.

I live in a very scenic area that is rather dense with forestry so we get a lot of different birds with the changes in seasons, many of which I have no idea what kind of bird they are, so I thought it would be a good idea to pick up a book to identify the unknown birds and to learn about our feathered friends so I know what kind of food to provide them.

I have to say that I am glad I purchased this particular book because it provides full-page, color photos of the birds which makes it easy to identify birds. What I enjoy the most about this book is its easy to use format. You do not need to know the birds classification to look it up to identify it, rather, you simply turn to the color tabs to search for the bird in question. For example if you see a yellow bird and would like to know what kind of bird it is, all you need to do is search through the yellow tabbed pages to identify the bird.

The book is 324 pages, with gloss cover/ binding, and it gives good basic details on the birds listed such as their classification and nesting habits. It is a pocket sized book, measuring 4" x 1" x 6". It is a bit dated, published in 2000 so I am sure there are some newer species missing (also you might want to know that the author did not include ALL birds in this book, only the most common species found in NJ) but its still worth picking up especially if you are birdlover or new to birding!

This book single handedly got me started bird watching, first learning about the birds at my feeders. Then at the beach, the park, even local shopping center parking lots. Great for everyone from beginners to experts. Plus I think Mr. Tekiela has put a book out on each state, I also bought his Birds of Wisconsin book because I have family there and frequently visit.

I keep this by my patio to look up birds showing up at my bird feeders. Small enough to take on hikes. Colorful full page pictures and easy to look up by the color of the bird. Males and females are also cross referenced if they differ in color.

I'm not an expert, but I do love bird watching. I'm pretty good at identifying the Genus, but sometimes it's hard to ID juveniles or species. This guide is color-coded! Just look in the section of the bird's primary color and you'll find it!

I just started birdwatching and this has become my go-to guide. It is organized by bird color (I.e. Black, black and white, blue etc.). Within each bird description there is a 'compare to' section to help you determine if you are confusing it with a similar bird. Excellent photos and concise yet detailed descriptions. For me, it is just perfect!

This is hands down the best bird book to quickly identify birds in your area. The birds can be looked up by color and approximate size. Feeding and nesting information is provided for each bird, as well as preferred habitat. I have given many of these as gifts and they are a big hit!
